We’ve been coming here for the last 8 years and it never disappoints. The service is top notch and the food is just as good. We will continue to come here and recommend to others. Thanks for another great meal.

We had the pleasure to eat here & they were so friendly. The food was really good and a reasonable price. We will be sure to eat there again when we are in Carolina Beach.
